June 13, 2013 Everett Motorcycle Deputy Rammed By Wrong Way Driver Snohomish County Sherriff motorcycle in Everett was hit and dragged by an old Lexus ES which crossed over into oncoming traffic on Evergreen Way. The Lexus driver was taken to the hospital, and told police he did not remember the crash and assumed he must have had a diabetic episode. A trooper on a motorcycle had been killed in nearby Skagic County on May 31 where traffic had been redirected around the fallen span over Interstate 5. It was determined that the Lynnwood man suffered a diabetic episode, as prosecutors alleged that Jason Buckingham mismanaged his diabetes and shouldn’t have been behind the wheel when he (either) lost control (or carefully aimed) his car, veered across several lanes of Evergreen Way and smashed head-on into a sheriff’s deputy on a motorcycle. Deputy Bill Dawson was thrown from his bike and suffered serious injuries, including broken bones and organ damage. Dawson has since returned to work after 3 months in a wheelchair. Prosecutors allege that Buckingham, 34, disregarded the safety of others when he drove that day. He was charged with vehicular assault
